Clubs, Performing Arts and Service Activities

Middle School and Upper School students participate in Clubs, Performing Arts and Service. Registration is open throughout the year.

Clubs, Performing Arts and Service activities provide students with an opportunity to try new activities or to develop interests and skills over a more sustained period of time, allowing for opportunities for student leadership and personal excellence.

Each activity is open to a specified range of grades and may vary year on year. The activity will normally run either all year round or part-year in preparation for a performance or event.
